Could Sprint Have Something up Their Sleeve?
We’re not too sure when Sprint relocated to Bizzaro World, but something doesn’t seem right. Yes, we’re very much aware that there’s a big conference call set for this Friday, but why wait so long to say something? This is a very unconventional approach for Sprint. For example, during Samsung’s big Galaxy S II event, Sprint immediately pulled the trigger and sent out a press release dishing the goods on the Samsung superphone. Sure this is Apple we’re talking about and yes things get done differently when dealing with them, but what about the competition? Go to Verizon and AT&T’s websites and the first thing you see is the iPhone 4S in all its glory. So what gives? Could it be that there’s more than what meets the eye?
What if Sprint has something up their sleeve? Something bigger than most could imagine? We’re talking more along the lines of what people were expecting yesterday. Could it be that Sprint is playing possum in order to steal the spotlight? It was rumored by both the Wall Street Journal and BGR that Sprint had bet the house on the iPhone in a risky but blockbuster deal to exclusively carry the iPhone 5. Of course Apple’s event told another story. But we wonder how could two highly credible publications throw up such a brick? Perhaps someone zigged where they should have zagged? Or could it be that Sprint is planning on announcing the iPhone 5 during their highly publicized conference call on October 7th?
We know that this is all a shot of a cannon, but we’re really trying to understand why Sprint is keeping so quiet. By almost all accounts they should be throwing confetti around and doing the happy dance, but they’re not. They’re not saying or doing anything and that’s just plain weird. Hopefully we’ll see something soon, but at least for now we’ll go into October 7th’s conference call with casual expectations at best.
